I printed out the letters and numbers onto matte photo paper printed in flower and blue sky photos and glued stands onto them before going to pick the kids up from school. Shot the image before cooking dinner. Then, Shadow/Highlights, Exposure, Levels when I stole another minute...until I got the 'florescent look', then the border, Neat Image ... maybe twice, then Sharpen, then Save for Web.

I think it's kinda cool. The funny thing is... it's kinda a "Risk" entering something so weird. *sigh*

Yes. I'm weird.

But, "Safety"? "Risk"?

What's a girl to do?? *grin*

I really like this idea and it stood out as a thumb nail, really well.
For some reason I am often drawn to your images in challenges, as I think I just like the way you think, and how you set up your entries.
Surprised it did not do better.
I gave you a 7.

Geez, probably a dead give-away ribbon. It's clever but not really my type of photo. To me, it's not really a photo as it seems more of a staged graphic and I don't think that's what DPC should be about.

Back to comment and bump: Exceptional set up and lighting. You effectively executed your concept and produced a humorous shot for a tough challenge topic. 8

Nice idea, it's a shame you couldn't clone out those sparse white specks. The colours are cool.

Had thought of doing something like this. I think you've done well with it. I think I'd have struggled to get anything nearly as good as this.
